Saturday, Mission Bay
A little info about how our reunion came to pass. Growing up we had reunions every other year, usually in Newport Beach. As we grew up we would have mini-reunions in Phoenix, or go camping. Our last major reunion was in Utah in 2004. My grandma decided she wanted a reunion that everyone could come to. So she rented everyone beach houses, paid for gas or flights to and from California, to ensure we could all make it. Only one cousin couldn't get off of work. It was amazing. 84 Peterson's, together again. It was the best gift she could ever give to any of us, and I think she enjoyed it also.
This was our 1st day. We all met up at Grandma's house to get aquainted with new and old cousins, and to go over the week's itinerary. It was such a great reunion. It took a lot of time and planning, but it was totally worth it. I love my family, and I am so thankful for them all.
